This movie seems to make Canadians shake their head and wonder why Americans are so backwards.
Penn is great. A courageous movie to make.
So powerful. The characters were well written. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. If you haven't watched it yet, go see it!
Absolutely awesome... gripping and powerful. HAS to be seen this season.
Great Film. Alison pill was awesome
Amazing, Sean Penn is an amazing actor! You should go and see it.
This movie was excellent! Everyone should see it!
While it was a little long, the time flew by due to Sean Penn's mesmorizing acting. Milk's is a historical/emotional story that needs to be remembered and Gus Van Zant does it with respect and taste.
Sean Penn is brilliant...excellent movie.
there was a rumor Alison Pill was arrested on set for starting a riot.But they found out that they were filming this film and let her go
Amazing!!! Great cast-especially Sean Penn and Emile Hirsch
Sean Penn is amazing-better than 'I am Sam'! The makeup is also fantastic to see him age.
Too good to miss, what a great story, what a great movie. Too much like today, this movie provokes many unanswered questions. A great addition to any Diversity and Civil Rights History program.
its was really good
What an amazing movie! Sean was excellent as well as rest of the cast members. I was very moved by the whole movie - whether it was the old footage or how the story was protrayed. Two thumbs way up and definitely deserve all 5 stars for all the actors and actresses in the movie. Go see it!
I almost never give 5 stars for a movie, that score is reserved for those that I feel are classics and whose appeal will last for more than the moment. This is one such 5 star movie. The performances are spot on and for those of us who were around during the times depicted it rings true. This is history. Important history. Well told.
this is the movie that can touch the innermost of your hearts straight or gay... this movie make me cry people are people, we should all be equal...
Amazing what people can do when they come together for a cause they believe in. Great true story and human rights piece. Sean Penn is an incredibly versatile actor.
Hate to burst your bubble, but people in Canada do get fired or passed for promotion for being gay. Naturally though, it's not labelled as such, but there are many Canadians that feel uncomfortable with the notion and look for ways not to deal with it. That being said, they should see the movie to become better educated. People are people, straight or gay.
Go see this movie. Thank god we live in Canada.
This is an extremely well done, informative, brilliantly acted film about the gay rights movement that everyone should see - Harvey Milk was a revolutionist who changed the lives and rights of gay people living in the turbulent times of Anita Bryant and her anti-gay activism discriminating against homosexuals. This is a lesson in history that should be studied. This is an inspiring film. Get out and see it. Gus Van Sant is back!
Penn is amazing. Loved it. He will win all of the awards.
this is lame
